This is the best salad, even for people that claim they "don't like salad". My husband is not much of a salad guy, but he ate the entire plate, and had room for seconds. Of course he hogged most of the turkey, but that's ok, I was just glad I finally got him to eat something healthy. We didn't do the cranberry sauce dressing, we used ranch. Other than that, made no changes and loved every bite.

Best turkey cobb salad ever! I added extra bacon and egg! You can never really have too much of either. I had so much leftover turkey, this was such a great way to re-use the meat and not be wasteful. Oh, and I used spinach instead of bibb lettuce.

I made this Cobb salad using turkey and chicken! The best of both worlds. I also skipped the dressing and used my own. I think I'll always want to make this salad with turkey now, it was so good.

I love Cobb salads, and this version using turkey was really good. I skipped the cranberry dressing and went with a different style vinaigrette. Overall I loved it!
